I would like to offer Jennie as a freebie for you to all use in your artwork again.  Just right click and save her to your hard drive.

Last week completely slipped away from me. There are so many of you I need to visit and I feel badly that you left me such lovely comments and I have yet to return the favor. My mission this week is to catch up on that! :-)

This is a little simple altered cigar box I made using some lace and an old cabinet card. Her name is Jennie Murray and there was a little bit about her written on the back of the photo. She hails from Michigan too! Ironically, my paternal grandmother’s maiden name was also Murray…so I wonder hmmmmm could Jennie have been a distant cousin? I doubt it as my Grandmother did not come over here until 1922 from Scotland but it is fun to think about.

I love when I find this type of cigar box to create art on because the lid is recessed and it makes it nice to inlay the art into. I also added just a little bit of paper on the interior. A great box to hide your trinkets and treasures.


I hope you all have a wonderful week! The trees are almost in full color where I live. I love this time of year. I just wish it could stay for a long while.
